Before you eat, practice HALT!

Am I HUNGRY?
Am I ANGRY?
Am I LONELY? 
Am I TIRED?


Emotional eating can wreck the best intentions. If you take a moment to HALT and ask yourself the above questions, you have a better chance of finding the right solution. If you are hungry- eat. (And if an apple won't do it, then you know it's not hunger!)

If you are eating because you are emotional- what will alleviate that?

  • Angry? Will food make you not angry?
  • Lonely? Is food great company or a friend?
  • Tired? (Okay, I admit- food can give you some pep- but to eat BECAUSE you are tired or bored- not good!) Rest! Take a nap! Meditate!

"You can never get enough of 
what you didn't want in the first place." 
Anne Valley-Fox

So- if you use food to try and fill you up because you are emotional, it is doomed to fail. At best, you will eat for self-medication...and it is a very short term "solution."

Do yourself a favor and HALT! You CAN find the answer to what ails you!

​If hunger's not the question- then food is not the answer.
